§ 3327. Restoration of Forfeited Credits.
(a) Forfeited credits shall at no time be restored as specified below:
(1) No credit shall be restored for any serious disciplinary offense punishable by a credit loss of more than 90 days. These offenses include Divisions A-1, A-2, B and C.
(2) No credit shall be restored if the inmate is found guilty of any subsequent rule violation that occurred within the required disciplinary-free periods provided in Section 3328.
(3) No credit shall be restored if the worktime credit denial or loss was ordered by court judgment unless the court rescinds or overturns the order.
(4) No credit shall be restored for the following disciplinary offenses:
(A) The inmate was found guilty of use of a controlled substance, marijuana, or alcohol, based on a positive test result from a departmentally approved testing method;
(B) The inmate was ordered to submit to a drug test pursuant to section 3290(c) and refused the test;
(C) The inmate was found guilty of fermentation or distillation of materials in a manner consistent with the production of alcohol in a prison or community access facility;
(D) The inmate was found guilty of unauthorized possession of dangerous contraband as defined in section 3000.
(b) Upon completion of a disciplinary-free period for Division D, E, and F offenses as provided in section 3328, an eligible inmate may apply to their caseworker for credit restoration by submitting a CDC Form 958 (Rev. 8/87), Application for Inmate's Restoration of Credits. A restoration hearing shall be conducted within 30 days of the inmate's application. The inmate has a right to be present at the hearing and to a written decision of the committee.
(1) A classification action resulting in restoration of worktime credit shall be documented and forwarded to the facility's case records staff for recalculation of the inmate's release date.
(2) When an inmate does not meet the criteria for a credit restoration hearing, the caseworker shall note the reasons on the CDC Form 958 and return it to the inmate.
(c) Credit shall be restored at the consideration hearing unless it is determined that the inmate has, since the disciplinary infraction leading to the credit forfeiture, refused or failed to perform in a work, training, or educational assignment during the required disciplinary-free period, or under extraordinary circumstances, as described in section 3329.
(1) Credit shall not be restored in an amount rendering the inmate overdue for release.
(2) An inmate who is a violent offender as defined in Penal Code (PC) Section 667.5(c), or who is serving a term upon conviction of child abuse pursuant to PC Sections 273a, 273ab, 273d, or any sex offense identified in statutes as being perpetrated against a minor victim, or who is an offender for whom such notification has been ordered by any court shall not be eligible for credit restoration which would result in a notification being provided to local law enforcement in less than 45 days prior to the inmate's scheduled release date.
(3) The inmate shall be informed at the hearing that case records staff shall determine the actual release date which shall include a minimum of ten working days for release processing. However, if the inmate is a violent offender as defined in PC Section 667.5(c) or is serving a term upon conviction of child abuse pursuant to PC Section 273a, 273ab, 273d, or any sex offense identified in statutes as being perpetrated against a minor victim, or for whom such notification has been court ordered, the number of working days for release processing shall be sufficient to ensure that local law enforcement officials will be notified of the inmate's release in not less than the 45-day time frame required by law. A copy of the new legal status sheet reflecting the credit restoration shall be provided to the inmate.
(d) If less than 100 percent of restorable credits forfeited are restored by the classification committee, the inmate may make additional applications for restoration upon completion of additional disciplinary-free periods until all restorable credit is restored or the inmate is released from custody.
